Wayne Allwine, the voice of Mickey Mouse, was married to Russi Taylor, the voice of Minnie Mouse. Taylor has been the voice of Minnie since 1986 while Allwine voiced Mickey for three decades, only two people have voiced Mickey before him – Jimmy MacDonald and Walt Disney himself. Allwine and Taylor were married from 1991 until Allwine’s death in 2009. Of their marriage, Taylor once stated,
Everybody goes, ‘Oh, that’s so sweet.’ When we got married, we kind of kept it quiet because everybody was saying, ‘Oh, Mickey and Minnie got married.’ It wasn’t Mickey and Minnie; it was Wayne and Russi. We wanted to keep it about us and not about the characters.
Taylor was also the voice of Scrooge’s grand nephews, the identical triplets – Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck on the animated television series DuckTales.
